In a 10- to 12-inch sauté pan, heat the olive oil with the garlic over medium-high heat until just sizzling.
Add the broccoli and cook, tossing frequently and gradually adding the wine to keep the garlic from browning until the stalks are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the red pepper flakes and zests, and tossing well, serve immediately.
